I didn’t say cost cutting had anything to do with it and no I’m not making anything up it’s what I have herd and read. I have read the thread yes and i have no doubt it eventually coming but when, as someone previously said second quarter but that’s not happened. What I’m really wanting to know is the watch going to be compatible when e sim is released or are Vodafone going to make us wait like spark are? Spark has e sim but the Apple Watch is not compatible yet the Samsung one is so that’s confused me but hey I’m not a telecommunications expert I think we all would like a bit information it may stop people jumping telcos if we informed
I beg to differ. I went to Vodafone branch and the dude there specifically said eSim has been moved to next year. The dude makes sense. Apple phones are not 5G compatible. October 2020 launch will be for iPhones 5G compatible. The dude makes a point. Esim is required now. 5G is not important. It drives me crazy seeing people texting and facebooking while driving. Even my kids , I will take away their mobiles and esim watches they must live with. And the dude also makes the right point. Jason Paris said Q2 2019 esim will be offered. Now that’s been pushed forward to 2020.
Iv got e sim from spark set up now (work number) but turns out I can just use for personal stuff too so once iv saved up to pay last of the phone off and close my voda account I’ll be leaving I don’t like spark but hey better tan waiting for empty promises
Won’t be until next year unfortunately Colin. We are prioritising 5G and moving off some of our legacy IT first. I know it’s an important feature for some customers so it’s definitely on our priority list.
